At the sentence level, Paul Auster's Winter Journal is very well written. As for the substance, the author's recollections are neither enlightening nor deep (at some point he actually describes a movie he once saw, and he describes it in great detail!) . All in all, this book didn't have to be written.
a beautiful, a poet's, recollection of the ages of his life, and therefore of every wo/man's
an interesting concept for a book and the first half was interesting, insightful but I found it then got a tad tedious
Interesting reflections on Auster's life, mostly in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Patches of wonderful writing about deeply personal experiences. Auster builds meaning and atmosphere by accretion. This book is like Mary Gordon's SEEING THROUGH PLACES of special interest to fans of these authors.
